It required pro overclockers no more than 7 days to really prove that Nvidia Corp.’s hottest GM200 GPU also referred to as the “Big Maxwell” GTX Titan X can operate at clock-rate that surpasses its default speeds by twice.
Vince “K|NGP|N” Lucido, certainly one of the world’s leading overclockers who collaborates with EVGA as well as is the owner of a firm that generates products for extreme cooling, this week was able to overclock a reference Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X graphics card to massive 2020MHz for the GPU and 8200MHz for memory. The specific graphics board is actually the highest-performing single-chip graphics adapter in the entire world.
The intensely overclocked GeFore GTX Titan X GPU was cooled down making use of liquid nitrogen (LN2 ). It is unidentified whether or not Mr. Lucido needed to boost voltages of the GM200 GPU and the GDDR5 memory to attain his marvelous end result.
Using his test system based on an Intel Core i7-5960X processor overclocked to 5672MHz ( likewise cooled-down utilizing liquid nitrogen ), an EVGA Intel X99 mainboard and also 16GB of 3 .30GHz DDR4 RAM, Kingpin have scored 24027 points in 3DMark FireStrike and 11612 in 3DMark FireStrike Extreme benchmarks, which are both new world’s records for single-GPU configurations.
As it turns out, Nvidia’s GM200 is an excellent overclocker even though the point that it consists of 8 billion of transistors and was tuned for highest possible power efficiency, not for maximum over clockability.
Given that Nvidia does not sell its GM200 GPU to its partners, however, supplies them GeForce GTX Titan X graphics cards developed under its supervision by an agreement manufacturer, we are going to hardly see any custom designed GM200-based graphics adapters at any time soon. Nevertheless, as soon as voltmodders learn how to increase voltages on standard GeForce GTX Titan X graphics cards, anticipate new records from pro overclockers.
